The Australian continent will be smacked by an intense blast of winter this week, one set to deliver heavy snow to Tasmania, as well as flurries down to as low as 200m (650ft) in Victoria. Then, forecasts reveal things turn even COLDER by the weekend.
Eastern states are bracing for “really cold Antarctic air,” according to the Bureau of Meteorology’s Simon Louis, as a low-pressure system gets kicked-up from the southern Pole.
TND is calling it a “vicious cold snap”.
Senior forecaster Tom Fejes has said snow will start settling on Monday this week: “We could see snow fall as low as 300 or 400 metres in some parts, like the Dandenong Ranges (east of Melbourne) or Macedon Ranges,” he said.
Snow is a possibility down to as low as 200m (650ft) in parts of Victoria, according to adelaidenow.com.au, and even down to sea-level in parts of southern and western Tasmania.
“We will probably see widespread frosts through the middle of the week,” continued Fejes, “particularly through northern Victoria” where temperatures are expected to tumble well-below zero (C).
We can expect the mercury to tumble well-below freezing in Canberra, too. And even Sydney will see temps “substantially sink.” In addition, Melbourne will struggle to achieve double digits.
Police are urging folks across Tasmania and Victoria to take note of the forecast weather warnings.
“Because this is a fairly unusual situation and we’re talking about some really cold, windy, wet conditions across the east coast, there is some concern if people are not experienced or not prepared properly and are out walking,” BOM supervising meteorologist Simon Louis said.
“It’s potentially going to be some really nasty conditions for them. I would urge anyone that’s thinking of going hiking to those locations to make sure they are prepared and definitely follow advice from National Parks.”
And then, things are set to get even chillier by the weekend as a brutal blast of Antarctic air looks set to engulf much of the continent on Friday, August 7.
Temperature departures are forecast to tumble as much as 14C below the seasonal average, particularly across the central and southern regions:
“While it will be a cool end to Monday in Victoria, buckle up because it’s going to get colder,” said Sky News Weather meteorologist Alison Osborne.
All-time low temperature records could fall.
Stay tuned for updates.
The COLD TIMES are likely returning in line with historically low solar activity, cloud-nucleating Cosmic Rays, and a meridional jet stream flow. Even NASA appear to agree, if you read between the lines, with their forecast for this upcoming solar cycle (25) seeing it as “the weakest of the past 200 years,” with the agency correlating previous solar shutdowns to prolonged periods of global cooling here.
Don’t fall for bogus, political agendas.
Prepare for the COLD — learn the facts, relocate if need be, and grow your own.
